Jofra Archer expressed confidence in his team's capability and said that the series will not be one-sided. The pitches in India are often prepared to boost the spinners than the pacers when it comes to the game's purest format. Rather than getting stuck by challenges ahead, Archer stated the English spinners can explore such conditions.

India and England will play in the four-match Test series, and there is no doubt that the battle will be overwhelming. The last time England travelled to India was back in 2016. 

During that tour, team India defeated the English side 4-0. Throughout the series, team England failed to understand the spin variations by Ashwin and Ravindra Jadeja. On the other end, England spinners were also not successful in scalping wickets. 

Archer impressed with Team India's performance in Australia

There is no denying that the Indian cricket team have a world-class pace bowling attack. But the conditions are going to offer more help to the spinners than the pacers. The first two Tests of the 4-match series will take place in Chennai. The track in Chennai has been traditionally helpful for spin bowlers. Thus, it will be challenging for Joe Root and the team to face the Indian spin attack.

Jofra Archer also talked about the 2020 Border-Gavaskar Series. The fast-bowler was stun by Team India's ability to find new heroes during Australia's extended tour. 

Archer will be touring India for the first time while playing for his country. The 25-year-old plays for the Rajasthan Royals since 2018. Archer, who was rested along with Ben Stokes and Rory Burns in Test series against Sri Lanka, will be eager to get on the pitch for his side. The England cricket team has already arrived in Chennai for the first Test, which will begin from 5th February. Both India and England arrive in the series after great victories. 

India defeated Australia 2-1 Down Under whereas England won 2-0 against Sri Lanka. The 4-match series is going to be part of the ICC World Test Championship. Team India is currently leading the table while England is fourth.
